Trapezoidal foul lane??? What???

Does everyone realize that tonight's game will be played on a court with international basketball dimensions? Check this out:

"All games in the Preseason NIT games are being played under experimental rules, in which the three-point line will be at 20 feet, 6 inches, and the foul lane is trapezoidal. Both elements are part of international basketball rules, and the new three-point distance has been approved for all games starting in 2004-05."

Yet another reason to watch and learn..and another reason to defend well down low and let the Cajuns take threes all night!
